Before we get to the Friday Flourish this week, have you checked out our Forum
recently? We've got some new posts and some rather interesting questions up! Go take a look!
This week for the Friday Flourish we take a look at a variant of another trick we showed several weeks ago that can add a bit of variety to a contra dance in the space of a swing. The timing on this one can get a bit dicey, but it's well worth the practice. (Apologies for the background noise -- our usual shooting location was unavailable, so we had to improvise this week as we re-shot in light of last week's technical issues.)You could have your flourishes featured on this blog, too! Send them to us via the Contact form or to the Contra Syncretist YouTube channel.Happy Friday,CSP.S. I am hoping that the threat of Hurricane Irene for this weekend does not delay Monday's planned update. If we lose power here in the DC area, it may be delayed, but as soon as the electricity comes back on we'll be back online with more interviews and entries for you to enjoy!
Stay safe, all of you other folks on the East Coast....
